Driving Home For Christmas = One Hour Long Version

This beautiful one hour long song by Chris Rea singing Driving Home For Christmas reminds me of when I lived and toured as a DJ in beautiful Norway.

One job saw me having to leave one gig and get to another within hours. I was DJing at the Viking Hotel in Harstad, Norway back in 1986 (I bloody hated it there working from 8pm – 4am) If ever you think DJing is easy try doing 8 hours without a break and having to mix the music up so much….. Christmas Carols, Simple Minds, Stranglers, Abba, local Pop Stars and just about everything you can think of…..

Never mind I was in a SUV at 4.30am (sober for a change) with a Danish guy who was driving me and all my baggage and music back to beautiful Tromso which I loved.

This song will always remind me of this journey!

Thanks for stopping by
